We asked Thomson holidays to move us to another hotel than was quieter but they were unable or unwilling to do .
One of our worst holidays due the horrific noise.This building site work is due to continue until mid 2018

Hotel tip: Wait until the building work has finished before booking a holiday at this hotel

Boy, can it rain in Madeira, that is why it's so green. The food was varied and a good choice but drinks are rather expensive. Behind the hotel is a small garden which is lovely. The internet was free all the time we were there. TV lounge in the basement showing Sky Sports. The outside pool was heated and was enjoyable. Didn't partake of the evening entertainment (not our scene) but sat and chatted. Thank you to everyone we met, a lovely mix of people. There is a bus stop outside the hotel which will take you as far as the cable car station, just be patient the bus will come. We would normally walk into Funchal and get a taxi back, which ranged in price from 3 to 7 for the same journey.
Booked our trips with Madeira Happy Tours, very good value and excellent guides, we did the West tour, Nun's Valley and booked the catamaran to see the dolphins, just wish the weather had been a little better, it was cold on that boat. Visit the White House pub for extremely good value and lovely food, don't forget to see Joe for good prices. Directions:- turn right out of hotel, cross road and go down jitty to main road, turn right, White Horse is on the right, at the fork go left, Joe's is on the right, carry on down to the Lido, turn right and in the small shopping centre you will find Happy Tours, don't go too early in the morning, they open a bit later.
Loved Madeira, even so early in the year, there were still quite a lot of flowers to see.
Would we return to the Savoy Gardens, yes but later when all the flowers are out.
